The Office of Admission is eager to engage with you virtually this Fall.
Please note that Occidental is currently closed to visitors, with no organized campus tours being offered. This difficult decision was made out of an abundance of caution due to the novel coronavirus.
You can start getting a feel for the College, virtually, by taking a look around campus and joining us for a virtual Information Session. We hope that you will explore all of the resources available to you on this page!
This live session will be conducted by an admission officer who is joined by two current students for Q&A. There is also a pre-recorded Information Session that you can watch anytime. Prospective students, along with school and CBO counselors are encouraged to attend!
Prospective students can join these informal chats to ask our current students questions about their academic and co-curricular experiences. Current students will show you the campus while they answer your questions live. Plan to register for a student session after attending an information session.
Any first-year or transfer student planning to apply to Oxy this year is strongly encouraged to sign-up for an interview. Interviews are informal conversations that allow Oxy to learn more about you and give you the opportunity to ask more questions about Oxy. All interviews will be conducted virtually by admission officers, senior fellows, or alumni volunteers.
